5.0 out of 5 stars BEE HOTEL, 31 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Esschert Design Wood Bee House - Natural (Garden & Outdoors)
Thought I would write a review for this product purchased end of April 2013, as I looked at the reviews of it before purchasing and didnt find them particularly helpful.Purchased in the last week of April and put in place at the end of the month,its been up approx. 5 weeks.It looks great, which other reviews had stated,however,not much point looking great,if it doesnt do the job.Would like to report it does attract the bees,have 3 holes duly sealed up with mud/soil now,which I think is brilliant as it hasnt been up long.Would recommend it,in fact, intend to buy another one myself.
A couple of tubes were loose - I glued these back in place - and some had rough,flaky edges (the bees apparently like the inner part of the cane tubes to be smooth or they wont use them) - I smoothed the edges/inner part of the cane tubes with a small nail file.I attached it to a trellis,approx.5-6 ft from the ground,near wallflowers with a small pot of soil nearby.Have observed two bees going in/coming out today and now have 4 holes sealed up with mud/soil.Hope this review is helpful.

Remove the bee hotel to a dry shed over-winter, the baby bees or whatever they are by this stage can survive the cold,but, NOT, the rain. I did this late September 2013, having 10 holes sealed up at this time. The bee hotel can be placed back in the garden in April, I will be doing this and waiting to see the results.
